Alberto VARGAS ~ Pin-Up ✿

Alberto Vargas (1896-1982) was a noted Peruvian painter of Pin-Up girls. He is often considered one of the most famous of the pin-up artists.From the time Esquire first introduced America to the Varga Girl in 1940, the name Vargas has been synonymous with pin-up and pin-up art. Alberto Vargas' first job was drawing fashion illustrations (mostly in watercolour and pen and ink) for the Adelson Hat Company and Butterick Patterns. Eventually turning to freelance commercial illustration, he was painting in a store window in May 1919 when he was asked by a representative of the Ziegfeld Follies to show his work the next day to Mr Ziegfeld.
